Dolmen Orchestra


Emerging from the city of Bari within the southern Italian region of Apulia, the Dolmen Orchestra was the next main creative/experimental jazz orchestra going to the Italian scene through the ’90s, following Italian Instabile Orchestra. The Dolmen Orchestra was shaped in 1995 and executed by Nicola Pisani (who also doubled on saxophone), using a incomplete account list including trumpeters Marco Sannini and Alfredo Sette, trombonists Franco Angiulo and Giuseppe Savino, saxophonists Vittorio Gallo and Felice Mezzina, and percussionists Antonio Dambrosio and Aldo Bagnoni (the complete group is normally 15-20 parts). Over time of honing their audio and playing Italian celebrations, the orchestra agreed upon using the well-respected United kingdom label Leo. Their initial recorded task was 2000’s Sequenze Armoniche (Some Gregorian Reflections), which constructed jazz variations from Gregorian chant melodies, highlighted guests included vocalist Linda Bsiri, tuba participant Michel Godard, and baritone/soprano saxophonist John Surman. The follow-up, 2001’s Minotrauma, was similarly ambitious, adapting the Greek tale from the Minotaur (specifically as reinterpreted by Swiss writer Friedrich Dürrenmatt) to a protracted jazz collection. It highlighted vocalist Cristina Zavalloni, in addition to French trombonist Yves Robert within the sonic function from the Minotaur.
